Update of sorts

Monday, January 24, 2011

I made it through the weekend with too much alcohol and food at Denny's afterwards! UGH!!!! At least Sunday, I drank lots of water and ate a little better. (hamburger patties with cheese and a few chips) I didn't do one second of exercise and I have no idea if I will tonight. I know I should but I am so tired. Work is crazy busy and I had to play catch up bc I was off on Friday. All in All, I gained 2lbs over the weekend and now I have to work twice as hard this week to get back on track. For breakfast I had a protein shake. Ever since I had my fill, those little shakes keep me full until at least 10:30-11AM, which is great. I know that I made better choices because of breakfast. I wanted a piece of fried fish sooo badly! But I opted for a cheeseburger patty and black eye peas. I can't pass those up but luckily she didn't give me a bunch of them. They were delicious! On top of that I drank water at lunch which I think is why my head hurts, I normally drink tea all day. Missing my caffeine but I see the over all goal and just have to tough through it. My body will adjust eventually. Same goes for getting off of antidepressents, it took my body a long time to get off of it. Now I am all better and loving life. Will love it even more once I get this weight off of me! Anyway, I think tonight is a frozen lean cuisine because the hubby won't get home till close to 10PM and I have those for that exact reason. Hope everyone is having a wonderful day! Thanks for reading!~

Crazy week!

Friday, January 21, 2011

It has been such a crazy week. Life is getting better and work is still crazy! I took a MUCH needed day off. We got alot of stuff done around the house. The backyard looks much better! I moved alot of dirt around and got that in as exercise. YAY me! I've also lost 6 lbs since Tuesday. Granted I had clothes on when I went and weighed in at the Dr. Needless to say I am very proud of myself and my support system is proud too! emoticon

I can already feel the weightloss in my jeans but I can't get too happy for myself, I still have a majorly long road ahead of me!

Thank you in advance for the encouraging words!

I had an egg and a protein shake for breakfast. My husband doesn't like that I wake him up to cook my egg, I just never cook it right. Plus I really wanted oatmeal and he misplaced it. WOW I sound like a mean wife. Maybe I shouldn't post this. Oh well, the good, the bad, the ugly


Must hold myself accountable

Monday, January 17, 2011

Hello Sparkpeople world!

I just read an article on yahoo health and I thought maybe I should give it a try. I am 27 years old and I am at the heaviest I have been in 4 years. In March of 2006 I got the lap band procedure and it has obviously failed. I changed my habits then fell out of the old habits. I learned how to eat around the band and what I mean is I knew a cookie would pass through but bread wouldn't, so I ate the crap out of some cookies. Thursday I made an appointment with my surgeon to get it tighter, I am honestly trying to make a better effort to get a grip on this. I say this then remember what I ate for lunch. I had three slices of pizza from pizza hut. One slice of beef and two of thin crust pepperoni. I didn't eat breakfast and I never do. I know that is a habit I need to get out of. The bad thing is I wake up with plenty of time to eat breakfast I just sit on the computer until my ride shows up. How pathetic and sad is that?!

I know I am not sad or depressed, I have alot to be thankful for and alot to be happy about. I have a wonderful husband and we are embarking on buying a new house and putting ours on the market. We look forward to the bigger house and the possibility of adding children to the mix. We both want to have children so bad but I was told that I had to do something drastic before I can have kids. That was the advice of my Dr. I trust my dr with my life and if she says it is dangerous, I believe her. I want to have a healthy baby and be healthy myself. So the husband and I woke up Saturday and went for a walk/run, we would walk to one light pole and run to the next. I am still really sore from that. The weather was crummy so I didn't do it yesterday. I got a Zumba game for Wii for Christmas, I plan to see how that goes tonight.

Anyway, off to finish some work, I have alot to do!

    April, Thank you!

Leah, I am fully aware I eat like crap when I do not eat breakfast! I do good even if it is just a bowl of oatmeal.

    Struggle through the start and then it becomes a habit. There are days I'd rather sit and watch TV, and there are days I don't want to wake up to cook breakfast, but then I remember I eat crappy ALL DAY when I don't have breakfast, and I'll never reach my goals if I don't get up and work for it. Turn that "I should" to an "I will!"
